Pakistan – P-3C Aircraft
 
 
(Source: Defense Security Cooperation Agency; issued Nov. 16, 2004)
 
 
 On 16 November 2004, the Defense Security Cooperation Agency notified Congress of a possible Foreign Military Sale to Pakistan of eight P-3C aircraft with T-56 engines as well as associated equipment and services.  
 
The total value, if all options are exercised, could be as high as $970 million.  
 
The Government of Pakistan has requested a possible sale for eight P-3C aircraft with T-56 engines, communications equipment, training devices, medical services, support and test equipment, engineering technical services, supply support, operation and maintenance training, documentation, spare/repair parts, publications, documentation, personnel training, training equipment, contractor technical and logistics personnel services, and other related support elements. The estimated cost is $970 million.  
 
This proposed sale will contribute to the foreign policy and national security of the United States by helping to improve the security of a friendly country that has been and continues to be an important force for economic progress in South Asia and the global war on terrorism. The command-and-control capabilities of these aircraft will improve Pakistan's ability to restrict the littoral movement of terrorists along Pakistan's southern border and ensure Pakistan's overall ability to maintain integrity of their borders.  
 
Pakistan intends to use the proposed purchase to develop a long needed fleet of maritime and border surveillance aircraft. The addition of these aircraft will provide Pakistan with search surveillance, and control capability in support of maritime interdiction operations and increase their ability to support the U.S. Operation Enduring Freedom Operations; anti-ship and anti-submarine warfare capabilities; and a control capability over land against transnational terrorists and narcotics smugglers. The modernization will enhance the capabilities of the Pakistani Navy and support its regional influence and meet its legitimate self-defense needs. Pakistan is capable of absorbing and maintaining these additional aircraft in its inventory.  
 
The proposed sale of this equipment and support will not affect the basic military balance in the region.  
 
The prime contractor will be Lockheed Martin Company of Greenville, South Carolina. There are no known offset agreements proposed in connection with this potential sale.  
 
Implementation of this proposed sale will require the assignment of several U.S. Government and contractor representatives for two-week intervals twice annually to participate in training, program management and technical review.  
 
There will be no adverse impact on U.S. defense readiness as a result of this proposed sale.  
 
This notice of a potential sale is required by law; it does not mean that the sale has been concluded. (ends)

Pakistan – PHALANX Close-In Weapon Systems
 
 
(Source: Defense Security Cooperation Agency; issued Nov. 16, 2004)
 
 
 On 16 November 2004, the Defense Security Cooperation Agency notified Congress of a possible Foreign Military Sale to Pakistan of six Phalanx Close-In Weapon Systems (CIWS), upgrade of six Phalanx CIWS Block 0 to Block 1B, as well as associated equipment and services.  
 
The total value, if all options are exercised, could be as high as $155 million.  
 
The Government of Pakistan has requested a possible sale for six Phalanx Close-In Weapon Systems (CIWS), upgrade of six Phalanx CIWS Block 0 to Block 1B, spare and repair parts, modification kits, supply and support equipment, personnel training and training equipment, publications and technical data, U.S. Government and contractor engineering and logistics services and other related elements of logistics support. The estimated cost is $155 million.  
 
This proposed sale will contribute to the foreign policy and national security of the United States by helping to improve the security of a friendly country that continues to be a key ally in the global war on terrorism.  
 
The proposed sale will provide Pakistani surface ships with a highly lethal defense capability against inbound aircraft, missiles, and fast moving surface craft. The modernization of the CIWS will enhance the capabilities of the Pakistani Navy and support its regional influence. It will further allow Pakistan to ensure the viability of their existing CIWSs by facilitating the upgrade of the current Block 0 system that are being phased out and becoming unsupportable by U.S. Navy logistic systems. Upgrading of the current system into the Block configuration that the U.S. Navy operates from will also reduce Pakistani logistical costs and will also reduce overall operating expenses.  
The proposed sale of this equipment and support will not affect the basic military balance in the region.  
 
The prime contractor will be The Raytheon Company of Tucson, Arizona. There are no known offset agreements proposed in connection with this potential sale.  
 
There will be U.S. Government and contractor representatives for one-week intervals twice annually to participate in program management and technical reviews to Pakistan.  
 
There will be no adverse impact on U.S. defense readiness as a result of this proposed sale.  
 
This notice of a potential sale is required by law; it does not mean that the sale has been concluded. (ends)

Pakistan Contributes to Coalition Maritime Campaign Plan
 
 
(Source: US Navy; issued Nov. 29, 2004)
 
 
 GULF OF OMAN --- Pakistan Navy Ship Babur (DDG 182) conducted operations with USS The Sullivans (DDG 68) and French frigate FS Surcouf (F 711), in the Gulf of Oman as part of the Coalition Maritime Campaign Plan (CMCP) executed by Commander Task Force (CTF) 150 in the 5th Fleet area of responsibility (AOR) Nov. 21.  
 
As part of the global war on terrorism (GWOT), maritime interception operations (MIO) are conducted throughout the region to deter, deny and disrupt the movement of terrorists and terrorist-related materials.  
 
"Coalition forces, which include major navies of the world, are working to prevent terrorist attacks against vital maritime infrastructures in the region," said Capt. Asif Khaliq TI, commanding officer of Babur. "These infrastructures form the foundation for much of the region's economic growth, stability and prosperity and can significantly impact the global economy."  
 
"The 5th Fleet [AOR] is rather large É we could not do what we need to do here in support of the global war on terror without the help of coalition forces," said Cmdr. Stephen Lorentzen, 5th Fleet surface operations officer.  
 
International terrorist organizations pose a real threat to critical maritime infrastructures in the region, including the oil and shipping industries.  
 
"Pakistan being an important regional country, considers itself responsible for contributing toward peace, safety and stability in the region; which in turn will ensure uninterrupted economic activities in the region, which is mainly dependent upon the maritime sector," said Khaliq.  
 
Pakistan's contribution to 5th Fleet and CTF-150's pursuit of peace, safety and stability in the region is significant. In addition to one permanently assigned frigate, Pakistan provides invaluable regional expertise and insight.  
 
"They speak the languages here and they understand the environment," said Commanding Officer of CTF-150, British Royal Navy Commodore Tom Cunningham. "So as well as operating a ship, when we want advice on the region we can turn to the Pakistani ship and they can advise us on regional customs and movements of traffic. They basically give us our core expertise."  
 
"Also, because we are operating in support of international law, they have legal powers that most of us do not have in the region."  
 
With the help of its Special Service Group (SSG), Pakistan Navy ships have been committed to carrying out maritime interception operations in the region since April.  
 
"Our job is to board vessels and ensure all passengers are listed in the crew manifest," said Lt. Jawad Haider Khawaja, officer in charge of Visit, Board, Search and Seizure (VBSS) Team. "We assure vessels we are there to protect and help them, but they must be in compliance with the laws of the seas."  
 
In the last year, CTF-150 airlifted a crew member with appendicitis from an Iranian dhow for immediate medical treatment. Additionally, they seized a dhow carrying an illicit drugs and arms shipment bound for Somalia and discovered two tons of narcotics with an estimated street value of $8 - $10 million aboard a 40-foot dhow intercepted in the Arabian Gulf.  
 
"Ninety-nine percent of the time we board a vessel we have no problems," said Khawaja. "But every once in a while we catch a bad guy. And that's why we are there."  
 
Another important aspect of the CMCP is to check and interrupt the drugs, arms and human trafficking which is an equal menace in the region.  
 
"Pakistan participation in the CMCP is not aimed against any particular country or countries, it is rather aimed against those who are common enemies of peace and safety to ourselves and brethren in the region," said Khaliq.  
 
Respecting sovereignty, territorial waters integrity of each country and local customs continue to be the guiding principles in the mission of CMCP, as well as that of Pakistan and PNS Babur.  
 
"Part of our task over here, is, of course, the enforcement of international law and international resolutions," added Cunningham. "Therefore, international maintenance adds credibility to our mission. It also offers the opportunity for us to benefit from different nations' specialists, connections in the region, and their knowledge on the region."
